NBA INJURIES            
NAME POS. TEAM INJURY DATE INJURED EXP. RETURN DATE ANALYSIS
Malik Beasley G MIN SUSPENDED 25-Jan March Beasley's legal issues will cost him the next few weeks of action and while he's out, Anthony Edwards will see more shots and Jarrett Culver will see more playing time. Ricky Rubio will see even more time with the ball.
Tobias Harris F PHI Knee 25-Feb DAY TO DAY Harris may need to sit for the next game or two with a sore Knee and if he's out, Ben Simmons will be driving with the ball even more and Seth Curry will see a major boost in shots as well.
Hamidou Diallo SG/SF OKC Groin 24-Feb March Diallo is dealing with an injured Groin and while he's out, Kenrich Williams will see more playing time and Luguentz Dort will see more shots.
Hassan Whiteside PF/C SAC COVID 24-Feb No Timetable The Kings are starting to look like they are finished with Whiteside and he seems to only ever get minutes if Richaun Holmes is out of the game. Whiteside is currently in the COVID protocol and Marvin Bagley III could see additionall minutes.
Davis Bertans PF/C WSH Knee 23-Feb DAY TO DAY Bertans has a sore Knee and if he needs to continue missing time, Moritz Wagner will see more playing time at PF. The Wizards could opt to shift Alex Len their as well. Rui Hachimura will see even more playing time.
Kristaps Porzingis PF/C DAL Back 22-Feb DAY TO DAY Porzingis Back is bothering him and he continues to get ruled out of games and while he's out, Tim Hardaway Jr., Josh Richardson and Jalen Brunson will see more shots. Maxi Kleber will contiue picking up minutes.
DeMar DeRozan SG/SF SAS Personal 22-Feb DAY TO DAY DeRozan will miss at least one game this week due to personal issues and while he's out, Lonnie Walker, Dejounte Murray and Lonnie Walker will see more minutes and shots.
Jeff Green F/C BKN Shoulder 21-Feb DAY TO DAY Green has missed his last few games with an injured Shoulder and while Kevin Durant should be back soon, the Nets will have to go small until that time comes and DeAndre Jordan will see more minutes and plays called for him in the post.
Cam Reddish SG/F ATL Achilles 21-Feb DAY TO DAY Achilles injuries are tricky because you have to stay off of your feet until the pain is gone and Reddish has missed a couple of games and while he's out, Kevin Huerter will see more time with the ball. Danilo Gallinari could pick up more shots.
Jabari Parker F SAC COVID 23-Feb No Timetable The Kings need Parker at this points as they are running low on frontcourt options, but he along with Hassan Whiteside are in the COVID protocol. The Kings will need to play Nemanja Bjelica for a few minutes behind Marvin Bagley III.
Tyler Herro G/SF MIA Hip 20-Feb DAY TO DAY Herro continues to miss time with an injured Hip and that could keep Kendrick Nunn in the rotation despite Goran Dragic being healthy. Duncan Robinson and Kelly Olynyk pick up shots with Herro out.
             
Delon Wright G/SF DET Groin 19-Feb March With Wright out of the lineup, expect Josh Jackson and Saddiq Bey to pick up more playing time and shots. Saben Lee and Dennis Smith Jr. will also benefit by getting more playing time and he'll bring up the ball a bit.
JaMychal Green PF/C DEN Shoulder 19-Feb DAY TO DAY Green continues to miss games with an injured Shoulder and while he's out, Michael Porter Jr. will continue to play deep into games and Will Barton will shift up at times as well because Paul Millsap is still banged up.
Keldon Johnson F SAS COVID 16-Feb No Timetable With multiple Spurs not with the team due to being in the COVID protocol, the Spurs will have to rely on Jakob Poeltl, Lonnie Walker and Trey Lyles until their cleared or DeMar DeRozan returns
Derrick White G SAS COVID 16-Feb No Timetable With multiple Spurs not with the team due to being in the COVID protocol, the Spurs will have to rely on Jakob Poeltl, Lonnie Walker and Trey Lyles until their cleared or DeMar DeRozan returns

Rudy Gay F SAS COVID 16-Feb No Timetable With multiple Spurs not with the team due to being in the COVID protocol, the Spurs will have to rely on Jakob Poeltl, Lonnie Walker and Trey Lyles until their cleared or DeMar DeRozan returns
Taurean Prince F CLE Ankle 15-Feb DAY TO DAY Prince tried to return on 2/24 and he hurt his Ankle again. Jarrett Allen needs all of the help he can get until Kevin Love and Larry Nance Jr. return to the floor. Cedi Osman, Dylan Windler and Isaac Okoro will have to pick up the slack.
Blake Griffin PF/C DET BENCHED 15-Feb No Timetable Griffin will be benched until he is traded or released from the Pistons. With him out of the way, Jerami Grant should see even more shots and wings such as Saddiq Bey and Josh Jackson will see more playing time as well. Isaiah Stewart will see more minutes when the Pistons need size.
Andre Drummond C CLE BENCHED 15-Feb No Timetable Drummond will not play again for the Cavs until he is traded or released. With him on the sidelines, Jarrett Allen will see a ton more usage and once Larry Nance Jr. and Kevin Love are ready to return, they'll help with the depth. Until that time comes, Cedi Osman and JaVale McGee will see more minutes.
Devonte' Graham G CHA Knee 14-Feb DAY TO DAY Graham is still feeling pain in his Knee. He can't shake the injuries this year and for now consider him day to day and while he's out LaMelo Ball will see more time with the rock and Terry Rozier will see more shots as well. Malik Monk will play a few more reserve minutes.
Harry Giles PF/C POR Calf 14-Feb DAY TO DAY Giles is yet another injured Blazers big man and Robert Covington will have to continue to play deep into games and Derrick Jones Jr. will continue to see more playing time as his defense is needed.
Paul Millsap PF/C DEN Knee 14-Feb No Timetable We don't know when Millsap will be back on the court, but when he does re-enter the lineup, he will likely be restricted. We should know his fate soon when it comes to his Knee and Michael Porter Jr. will see more minutes along with JaMychal Green (when healthy).
Anthony Davis PF/C LAL Calf 14-Feb March More reports have come out that Davis will miss a month of action and that timetable can certainly be extended as the Lakers will not rush him back to the lineup. Kyle Kuzma will see more shots and playing time. Markieff Morris minutes go up as well and if Dennis Schroder can make it back on the floor, he will certainly benefit from a usage standpoint.
Kevin Durant F BKN Hamstring 13-Feb No Timetable The Nets are hoping to have Durant back before the All-Star break but that's not a lock and they will take it slow with him. Besides Kyrie Irving and James Harden's usage going up, Jeff Green and Joe Harris will also see more shots and time with the ball.
Ish Smith PG WSH Quad 12-Feb April This injury is a bit more impactful if you dig deeper because Russell Westbrook sits for a leg of back to back games and with Smith out of the lineup, Raul Neto will not only be the primary back up, but he'll likely draw some starts when Westbrook sits. Bradley Beal will also seemore time bringing up the ball.
Mitchell Robinson C NY Hand 12-Feb Late March Robinson fractured his Hand and while he's out, Nerlens Noel and Taj Gibson will fill the void. The immediate bump should favor Noel, but if Gibson plays better defense, Noel might see his minutes drop a bit. Julius Randle will also shift to C at times.
Caleb Martin SG/SF CHA COVID 11-Feb No Timetable With Martin out, it could give Malik Monk more playing time because Devonte' Graham is hurt as well but it doesn't make a huge impact in the Hornets rotation that Martin is out.
Cole Anthony PG ORL Ribs 9-Feb No Timetable The reports out say that we won't see Anthony take the court again for at least a month and while he's out Michael Carter-Williams will bring up the ball more and even Dwayne Bacon will see more shots with James Ennis a bit banged up.
D'Angelo Russell G MIN Knee 8-Feb Late March Russell just had a procedure on his Knee and that will keep him out until possibly April. While he's out Malik Beasley (when not suspended) has picked up the scoring, Ricky Rubio will handle the rock more and some of the wings like Anthony Edwards will continue to benefit as well.
Jrue Holiday G MIL COVID 8-Feb DAY TO DAY Holiday is back with the Bucks and he's getting close to returning to action. Donte DiVincenzo and Bryn Forbes will continue to see more minutes if he needs a couple more games.
Larry Nance Jr. PF/C CLE Finger 6-Feb March Nance joins Kevin Love on the sidelines and Jarrett Allen will see more run at PF until Love makes it to the court. Cedi Osman will certainly see more shots. Isaac Okoro will benefit with more minutes as well.
Lauri Markkanen PF/C CHI Shoulder 5-Feb Middle of March While Markkanen is sidelined, Thaddeus Young and Wendell Carter Jr. will see their minutes rise. Patrick Williams will also see more plays in the post. Denzel Valentine has helped out a bit more at SF.
Avery Bradley SG/SF MIA Calf 4-Feb March Bradley needs another few weeks to heal from a Calf injury and that will give Duncan Robinson more playing time in the Heat's rotation. Kendrick Nun and Goran Dragic will benefit in extra minutes as well.
Christian Wood PF/C HOU Ankle 4-Feb WEEK TO WEEK We don't have a locked in time when we'll see Wood again, but each week he will be re-evaluated and while he's out, P.J. Tucker will see more playing time and Jae'Sean Tate should see some minutes at C as well.
Otto Porter Jr. F CHI Back 1-Feb No Timetable Porter is no stranger to injuries and his Back continues to bother him and we don't know when he'll see the court again and until he returns, Patrick Williams and Denzel Valentine will help pick up the slack.
Aaron Gordon SF/PF ORL Ankle 31-Jan March The hits just keep coming for Orlando and with Gordon sidelined for over a month, it will be up to Khem Birch and Gary Clark to help fill the void. Evan Fournier and Terrence Ross will pick up more shots as well. Expect Fournier to run point a decent amount of time.
Gary Harris SG/SF DEN Adductor 31-Jan No Timetable Harris return is very uncertain at this point as he continues to miss action. While he's out Will Barton and Monte Morris will fill in. Expect Barton especially to pick up more shots.
Marcus Smart PG/SG BOS Calf 30-Jan Middle Of March Smart strained his Calf and it will cost him at least a few more weeks of action and Kemba Walker and Jeff Teague are going to have to pick up the pieces. If the Celtics want to give Walker more relief with Smart out, they could turn to rookie Aaron Nesmith.
De'Andre Hunter SF/PF ATL Knee 29-Jan April Hunter had a procedure on his Knee and it's starting to look like he will miss extended time and we may not see him until late-April. Cam Reddish (when healthy) and Danilo Gallinari will benefit by getting more minutes. John Collins will see more plays in the post.
PJ Dozier G DEN Hamstring 25-Jan DAY TO DAY Dozier continues to miss games with a strained Hamstring and while he's out Will Barton, Monte Morris and Michael Porter Jr. will see more time with the ball. Gary Harris is also hurt.
George Hill PG OKC Thumb 24-Jan March Hill had a procedure on his Thumb and will need to miss at least the rest of February and while he's out, Theo Maledon will see more minutes and Luguentz Dort will see more shots.
CJ McCollum SG POR Foot 16-Jan March McCollum is still out with a fractured Foot, but, he will be looked at over the next week and that will determine his status. The Blazers will need a combined effort from Anfernee Simons, Rodney Hood and Gary Trent Jr. to fill the void
Caris LeVert SG/SF IND Kidney 16-Jan No Timetable It's a very scary situation because upon being traded from the Nets in the big James Harden blockbuster, they found a "Mass" on his Kidney during his examination and he will need to get treatment and we don't know when he'll return to the court. Justin Holiday and Jeremy Lamb will see more minutes and shots.
Jusuf Nurkic C POR Wrist 14-Jan March Portland's big men can't shake the injuries as we already don't know when and if we'll see Zach Collins take the court and now Nurkic will be out a couple of months with a fractured Wrist. Enes Kanter and Robert Covington will help fill the void until Nurkic returns.
Bogdan Bogdanovic SG/SF ATL Knee 9-Jan No Timetable Bogdanovic is dealing with fractured Knee and it could be months until we see him again and Kevin Huerter, Cam Reddish (when healthy) and Danilo Gallinari will also see more playing time and shots.
Thomas Bryant PF/C WSH Torn ACL 9-Jan Out For The Season This is a major blow to the Wizards frontcourt and once the reports came out about Bryant's ACL being torn, we must look to Mo Wagner, Alex Len and Robin Lopez as they will fill the void. Both should see a bump and even Davis Bertans can stretch to center as well.
Markelle Fultz PG ORL Torn ACL 6-Jan OUT FOR THE SEASON Just when his career was taking a turn, Fultz season is over with a torn ACL. Rookie Cole Anthony is going to see a lot more minutes as will Michael Carter-Williams and even Jordan Bone could start getting more run.
Killian Hayes G DET Hip 4-Jan Late March Hayes' Hip is very damaged and we won't see him until mid-March the earliest. Until he returns, Dennis Smith Jr. and Saben Lee will help bring up the ball. Delon Wright will also help with distribution when he's healthy.
Dante Exum SG HOU Calf 4-Jan March Exum will miss more time with an injured calf and once he's healthy, he'll compete with Eric Gordon and David Nwaba for playing time behind John Wall and Victor Oladipo.
Kris Dunn PG/SG ATL Ankle 3-Jan No Timetable Dunn will have surgery on his ankle and we could know more information about his future by the time the middle of February hits. This bodes well for Kevin Huerter and Cam Reddish (when healthy). Rajon Rondo has solo back up PG duties.
Spencer Dinwiddie PG BKN Torn ACL 3-Jan OUT FOR THE SEASON With Dinwiddie out of the lineup for the rest of the way, the Nets will have Kyrie Irving and James Harden bring up the ball and Joe Harris will toggle between SG and SF for the rest of the way.
Kevin Love PF/C CLE Calf 3-Jan No Timetable Love's calf has been bothering him since prior to the start of the season and with him out for a little bit longer. Jarrett Allen and Cedi Osman will play bigger minutes and Isaac Okoro could see a few more shots.
Matthew Dellavedova PG CLE Concussion 3-Jan No Timetable We haven't see Dellavedova take the court yet this season and Darius Garland will see more minutes and Damyean Dotson will be his competition for back up minutes but he won't make a fantasy impact.
Marquese Chriss PF/C GSW Ankle 3-Jan No Timetable Chriss had surgery on his ankle and we won't see him until at least April. Draymond Green, Eric Paschall and even James Wiseman will see a boost in minutes and production.
T.J. Warren SF/PF IND Foot 3-Jan No Timetable We don't know when and if we will see Warren take the court again this year due to a stress fracture in his foot and we've seen Doug McDermott pick up minutes and the Holiday's should benefit from this as well.
Jaren Jackson Jr. PF MEM Knee 3-Jan No Timetable It's uncertain when we will see Jackson make his debut this season but March is looking good after having surgery on his knee. Brandon Clarke and Justise Winslow will see more playing time.
Zach Collins PF/C POR Ankle 3-Jan No Timetable Collins had surgery on his Ankle and we don't know when we'll see him back on the court. The timetable has become very vague. Robert Covington, Derrick Jones Jr. and Carmelo Anthony will see more minutes and shots.
